Yesterday’s Recap – Yesterday, we took down the Pick 5 at The Meadows which returned just over $7,000 for .50. The biggest price of the sequence came when Jeremy Indof guided Eagle Ford to victory in Race 12. The official Pick 5 was 2/8/5/2/4.
Race 10: #4 ROCKIN BILLY is one of the more consistent horses in the field in that he likes to hit the board. He adds Lasix and Trace Tetrick to the mix for the second time and looks to improve off some game efforts. He has the versatility that some of the other horses in the field don’t have.
#5 ALWAYS GLORIOUS was a game-winner against this group last week drawing off to win easily with Widger in the bike. Tonight he gets Bates back who seems to get along with him. If he is in a good early position he could strike.
#6 FOX ON THE RUN has had a little bit of a slow start to the season, but in his defense sometimes he has been facing the tougher company. Tonight he drops down and could use his closing speed to his advantage.
#7 POP SPEED is another class dropper that could potentially show up at a little bit of a price. The draw was not nice to him, but he has been known to hit the ticket a few times.
